December is here, which for many people means it’s time to put up a Christmas tree. Here are some local lots, nurseries, and farms that can help you find that perfect pine, fabulous fir, or sensational spruce.
Sullivan Hardware & Garden
Each of the four locations across town offers a wide variety of real and artificial trees for families to take home. To get even more into the holiday spirit, sign up for a wreath crafting workshop, or book a ride aboard the Sullivan Express at the Keystone location — in addition to family-friendly journeys to meet Santa, it even offers an adult-only beer and wine experience.
DIGS Garden Center
Indy’s only downtown garden center opened earlier this year and is celebrating its first holiday season with an assortment of Fraser firs and white pines. Pro tip: It also has a pop-up at the Athenaeum Christkindlmarkt.
Gore’s Christmas Trees
Since 1962, Gore’s has been serving all of Indy’s festive foliage needs with seven different varieties of trees to choose from, ranging from five to 19 ft. The lot also sells wreaths and garlands.
Watts Christmas Tree Farm
Located at Trader’s Point Creamery in Zionsville, Watts is well worth the drive. After you pick out your tree, stop into the creamery for a cup of fresh egg nog or take a farm tour to meet some of the herd.
Lost Forty Tree Farm
Prefer to cut your own tree? Drive out to this Greenfield farm known for its full, healthy trees — you can bring your own chainsaw or borrow a handsaw for free.
